So I don't just create items with polymer clay. I find that I like to incorporate creativity into almost everything that I do, so when the call comes from school that they need 36 cupcakes for the end of the year picnic, I can't just send in plain old cupcakes. It just wouldn't be right. They need to be special. My kids have learned to expect something over the top and I knew I had to deliver. I am not a great baker, but over the years I have created quite a few interesting baked goods, a VW Bug cake, a race track cake, a volcano, mud and bug cupcakes, a caterpillar and 2 dozen snowman cupcakes (2 years in a row). Here's what I came up with. They were a big hit, and I only had to stay up until 3AM to finish them.
Don't just save your creativity for your art, exercise you creative muscles whenever you can!
